    He played a good Bill Tanner, but I just don't see him as the Doctor... or any other lead role.

    I recall that a few years ago, bookies suspended betting on Colin Salmon to be the next James Bond, so stories like this are always somewhat dubious to me. Having fallen for the one from a few nights ago that the shortlist was down to three and the successful candidate would be announced on Saturday, I'm going to be taking stories like this with a pinch of salt.

    For all the comments about Matt's looks, he and David had a fairly big female following (even Chris did too) which I expect the producers will want to retain. They're not conventional heart-throbs but nor are they quite as homely as the balding and pudgy Mr Kinnear. I would expect someone in the same vein - quirkily good-looking but neither male model types nor the homely sort.

    The story gave me an excuse to go look at the IMDB page for Rory's father, the late lamented wonderful comedy actor Roy Kinnear. I was very surprised to see that he hadn't appeared in any episode of classic Who. I would nearly have bet money that he'd turned up there at some stage or another.

    Ooh, man.....not sure what to think of this choice. Looks a bit like C. Baker actually, but.....ooh.

    Not sure why people are going on about odo junior or whatever, this guy's not that old either. Older than Smith, but that was inevitable. Lets see how events take place.

    Rory Kinnear, appears to be a false rumor. his people have denied the conversation took place, and he has said he sick is of the rumor and wantss it quashed.

    Regarding Odo junior, that was the OP being insulting to Matt Smith'ss lack of defined facial features. The OP was implying Matt Smith's face is just like Odo's, but, younger.

    When 900 years old you are, look as good you will not.

    Isn't it indeed surprising? I can totally picture him in a DW episode. Maybe my subconscious remembers the B7 ep (I would have been an avid watcher at that time).

    In similar vein he also did The Avengers and Jason King.

    Ah good! I don't think he'd have done a great job.

    That man is just.. unbelievably handsome. If he is the new doctor I might be in a lot of trouble.

    Methinks you're being a bit too serious about the joke. They even have the same nose and wrinkles in the corners of their eyes!
